Just When You Need a Friend

Picture me as a middle aged  female corporate type in the middle seat, back of the plane experiencing turbulence on a Corporate America Airlines flight to job loss.I have a few close gal pals who are also corporate types but who have been lucky enough not to have been on the same flight. In the past having these gals in my life has been welcome.

Life Happens in the Meantime...

Have you ever been asked the question--who are you? A seemingly innocuous question, yet it packs the strength of a 1000 kicks to the gut. Who Am I? I am a wife, a mother, a sister, friend or businessperson. But that isn't good enough. Those are all really just labels and do they really get to the heart of who you are?
